A Road Trip and a Church Steeple

I’m running on about half a brain cell today, because I didn’t get to bed until about 5 in the morning.  I made a last-minute decision to go on a little road trip with my son yesterday.  He was running in a night race about 5 hours away from our house, so in addition to 10 hours of driving time, we left several hours early so I could hit some antique stores along the way.  It’s been awhile since I’ve let myself bring anything new home, because I’m so focused on trying to reduce the mountain of stuff in my workshop, but I couldn’t pass up the chance to hit some new shops.

At one of the small towns we stopped in, I spotted this beautiful church steeple clock on a really old brick building.  It’s located in Washington, Missouri, and a Google search yielded the information that the steeple and clock were built and mounted in 1866.  Isn’t it beautiful against the backdrop of the sky?

I’ve made this photograph available as a free printable without my watermark HERE.

It was already getting to be late in the afternoon by the time we got there, so we couldn’t spend as much time as we would have liked, but my son and I would both like to return and explore some of the other shops and restaurants in this charming town.  It sits right on the edge of the Missouri River and is only about an hour away from St. Louis, so I know we’ll have another road trip coming up this summer!

  1. what a great picture. it’s always nice to find new places to explore. :0)

  2. Road trips with your children are the best…especially when they can appreciate beautiful things like this awe-inspiring church steeple! And what a brilliant capture you’ve made of it, too…and so sweet of you to share! Marveling at old architecture is one of my favourite things…it really gives you a great sense of awe and wonder when you think that people just like us created such glorious and grand buildings…it’s sometimes hard to comprehend, isn’t it? You’ve gotta love that your son is up for another visit to the same town soon…that is something to look forward to! Angie, when you print off photos like this, what kind of printer do you use? And do you have a favourite kind of paper for such things? It seems like, when I print out photos, they are a little lackluster somehow…perhaps I’m doing something wrong?
